Finally Caturday

Hi efurrybody, Sami here!

OMC it's been a furry long time since we's been here to visit our furiends

The lazy busy mom has been working furry hard at her day hunting gig so when she comes home at night she feed us, watches the noisy box, and then goes to sleep.

At least we gets to cuddle with her when she's sleeping.

We has kept busy while we waits for her, emptying the food bowls, napping, playing, filling the litter boxes, napping, hollering for someone to fill the food bowls, playing, napping.  Phew, it makes me tired just thinking about it, MOL.

I'm gonna go have a nap now, and when mom is finished the housework she's gonna let us visit efurrybody.  We knows she'll sit down sometime today 'cuz the green guys are playing on the noisy box.

See you all later!  Have a great Caturday!!!

I ob..obli...let her take some pictures of me the other day.

 Here I is, looking pens...pensi....thoughtful.

And handsome too!

Mom shoulda moved over a little so the light would have given me a halo.

Cuz we all know I's an angel, right?

The mom knew it too 'cuz she didn't take no more pictures.  She knows that Tuxies rule!

Have a great Tuxie Tuesday efurrybody!

It's Caturday!

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here!

Lovely photo mom, where's my head?
It may be Caturday but it's taken until mid afternoon to get the mom bean to pay any a-ten-shun to us. Good thing we kitties can't tell time, MOL

Well, except for breakfast and dinner time....that we know furry well.

The mom was out in the yard today and she let all of us have a turn in the grass.  Saku gotted scared and he bit mom, which she didn't like furry much but said it was okay 'cuz she had her gardening gloves on.  Sami didn't want to come inside and she hissed at mom.  But I was purrfect, after I had some yummy grass to eat, mom said "time to go in handsome" and I listened.

I think I'm mom's favorite...what do you think?

Have a great Caturday efurrbody!

How to Human-proof a Cat House (courtesy of cats)

First, we must define "Human-Proof" as the act of arranging a cat house so that the humans who mom and pop-ulate it know without a doubt who is boss in your CAT HOUSE. To accomplish this, put yourself in your human's purrspective: jump up on the highest surface you can find. The top of a door is good, or the railing of a balcony. Your humans' screams of terror will inspire you as you go about surveying your domain. (The effect will intensify if you wobble a bit, or pretend to slip.)
Scan your gaze around your cat house to see spots where your human-proofing work is needed. Making your human's house a cat house is important business, so take your time. You'll see dozens of likely places that could set the scene. We'll give you some useful tips, and with your imagination, you can give this endeavor your purrsonal touch. Remember, cats rule!
The Hairball Hurl
At least once a week, leave a large hairball on the floor in a conspicuous place (the middle of the new Abusson rug is a purrfect spot, or next to the bed is good!) Your human will entertain you for several minutes, by poking, prodding, and analyzing it for content, then extend your entertainment by discussing it for hours with other fascinated humans. (The human mind has an unfathomable bent for making lemonade from life's lemons.)
Extra points are given for making a lot of noise before hurling the hairball. A tried-and-true technique is to hunch over, cough, gag, and groan a lot, then when you have attracted the attention of a solicitous human, produce your award-winning hairball. Your rewards will be enhanced by her cries of "ewuuew!" as she surveys the prize.
The Human Cat House Dance
Leave slippery toys lying around where your human is likely to encounter them at unlikely times (like coming into the house with both arms full of grocery bags.) Her antics as she flails her arms, with elbows, knees and ankles akimbo will give you lots to talk about with other cats on the Kitty Net. Take care that your human doesn't hurt herself, though. The object is just to promote a little fear and panic, which is good for humans - it stimulates their adrenaline glands and gets their hearts pumping. (Think of it as cat house aerobics.) Hard plastic jingle balls are good for this exercise - every self-respecting cat should have plenty of those lying around the house..
Cat House Twist on Toys
When your human brings home a new flashy electronic toy, profess great interest in the box it came in. Gather around it, sniffing and marking it with your cheek glands. Then, when your human hauls out the toy to assemble it, jump in the box for a game of hide-and-seek with another cat. Steadfastly ignore the toy, making it obvious that you think the box is the real gift. If your human fails to get the message, the braver among you may try simulating marking the toy with your other glands. Remember, the key word is simulate: just back up to the toy, raise your tail and let it quiver a bit until you get her attention. Prime cat house human-proofing!
An alternative is to give the toy a rousing round of play. Convince your human that you think it's the niftiest thing to come around since catnip. Then, when she has bragged about it to all her friends, convincing them to buy one too, give it the cold shoulder. Look at it with disdain, and give it a wide berth as you pass it on your way to play in a paper bag. You and your friends on the Kitty Net can do a "group snub" as a means of insuring your domain over your respective cat houses, and it will move you closer to human-proofing your own house.
Cat Food Scramble
This is an excellent variation on the Cat House Twist on Toys. Just substitute the latest bag of superior cat food your human brings home to your house. Sniff and scratch at the bag, or even try to tear it open. Then use either variation of the above method. A superb way to show disdain for food is to scratch the floor all around the bowl as if you were attempting to bury it. Your human will be humbled immediately by this ploy, and your goal of making a home a cat house will soon be within reach.
Bring your Human Gifts
Bubba's supreme crowning moment that made this house his cat house was the night he left a catfish corpse lying on the floor next to Franny's side of the bed. To this day, he has pleasant catnip dreams of her screams when she stepped on the gift in her bare feet on her way to the human litter box. The racket she made resounded throughout the house. Get creative, cats: look around your cat house for similar gifts to share with your human. She'll love them, and you'll get extra human-proofing points for your own house.

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Sometimes we sorta like Saku.

Not that we'd admit it most of the time, MOL!

Tuxie Tuesday

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!

The mom abandoned us again!  She says it is only for two nights but we still isn't real happy.  Good thing she left the bean sisfur and bean brofur here else we'd tear this place up, MOL!

At least she had the good sense to tippy tap a couple of posts before she left.  Though I might still leave her a prezzie ...let's see hairball, bomit or extra furs...what will it be?

While I is deciding here are some pictures she took of my handsome self on the weekend.

I was sitting very nicely waiting my turn to go outside (for a supervised visit of course)
Suddenly my atten-shun was di...diver...uh turned to something else.

What could it be?

The mom puts catnip on my rug.  Oh yeah...that is good stuff MOL!

Maybe I won't leave her a prezzie after all.

Have a great Tuxie Tuesday efurrybody!

Mancat Monday

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here!

We's got the cools here again today. :(  I asked to go out to the sunny room but I turned around real fast and came back indoors.  Mom turned on the heater in the sunny room so it will warm up faster.  :)  Sometimes she's a real good mom, MOL

Here's some photos from yesterday when Saku and I were in the sunny room.

This is where I plan to spend this afternoon.  Mom says we need to do it now 'cuz pretty soon the little heater won't do enough to warm up the room.  

Have a great mancat Monday efurrybody!

Cat-ch-up Sunday

Hi efurrybody, Sami and Sasha here!

Sorry we's been away for a day or so, but the mom says life is getting in the way.  We says she is just lazy MOL!

This morning we got her up nice an early o'clock to feed us.  You'd think she's be thrilled to be up so early to get stuff done but what did she do? She wented back to bed.  So we did too!

When she did get her lazy self out of bed we asked to go out to the sunny room.

Even though we asked nicely, she said no 'cuz it was too cold.

When we didn't take no nicely for an answer she let me (Sasha) out.  Brrrrr! She was right!

Mom says it was 1C (33F) out there. We thinks we'll wait until this afternoon before asking again, MOL!

So we decided it was time for mom to let us visit our furriends!

We gots the tippy tap mash-ine and her spot on the chair all ready for her.

Have a super Sunday efurrybody!

Pee Ess:  All the damage on the chair was done by our brofur Saku...not us...really, MOL

Friday funny

A pastor had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would not come down. 
The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten.
He did all this, checking his progress in the car frequently, then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved a little further forward, the rope broke.
The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight.
The pastor felt terrible.
He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business.
A few days later he was at the grocery store and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. Now this woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"
She replied, "You won't believe this," and told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it!"
She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes.
A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her."

Thankful Thursday

Hi efurrybody!

We're all here on Thankful Thursday 'cuz we're thankful for all of our furriends.  We're always thankful when somebody new comes to see us too!

And just the other day we gots a new follower, Carlos the Cat.  Be sure to go over and meet him too!

Carlos asked a question about how we gots our names.  We is thankful for questions 'cuz the bean can't be relied on to come up with good ideas for us to talk about, MOL.

I'm Sasha, and I came with my name from the Petcetera store.  Mom kept the name because I was named after a Russian gymnast (mom doesn't know which one).  Both my bean brofur and bean sisfur did gymnastics when they were younger, and the sisfur still coaches boys gymnastics.

Can you tell I have furry long legs? Do you think I could do a giant on the bar if I tried?

My name is Sami and that wasn't my name when I picked mom and the others beans for my family at the Humane Society store.  Mom can't remember what they called me.

When I camed home to live with my bean family, my brofur Sasha and sisfur Silver were already there.  Mom and the other beans talked about what to call me and realized they needed another "S" name. Mom said they sure couldn't call me Bob.

So I don'ts know who came up with the name Sami, but it went with Sasha and Silver and I liked it too.

I is Saku and I is named after a hockey player. My bean sisfur gots me when I was a little kitty and she lubs hockey!  She lubs me too, MOL

She called mom to tell her about me and they talked about names.  First I was going to be Zac or Zak or Zack but mom didn't like the name so my sisfur suggested Saku.

I think maybe Mom knew I'd come live with her furry soon.  She had Sasha, Silver, Sami, Shady, and Silas living with her then so Zak just would not have fitted in. And I sure is no Bob, MOL.

So that is how we gots our names.  Mom wanted S names so if she slipped up and called us sh*thead we wouldn't notice.  That's kind of mean but we furgives her...she gives us treats! And that makes us thankful too!

Have a pawsome Thankful Thursday efurrybody!!!

Tuxie Tuesday

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!

Boy the mom bean is sure lame.  Did you know it is Tocktober?  Well she didn't. It tooks her eight days to figure it out...lame right?  She tried to blame it on some men paws but that's lame too.  'Cuz 'cept for my bean brofur there are no men paws here and he hardly comes out of the basement so how can it be his fault?'s a fuzzy picture of my Tuxie tocks!

Mom says it's fuzzy 'cuz I was moving, not 'cuz she had the camera on the wrong settings again.

See whats I have to put up with?  Good thing Tuxies rule, or I'd be so outta here, MOL

Have a great Tuxie Tuesday efurrbody!

Missing no more

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here!

Normally this would be mancat Monday so the post would be all about me (since the pest brofur Saku always hogs Tuxie Tuesday).  But today I have some furry exciting news to share with you.

Last week two kitties were moving to Toronto from Vancouver.  Their bean was going with them too.  But when they were being loaded into the airplane the bottom of their carrier fell out and both kitties ran away into the airport.  One of the kitties was found pretty quickly, but Willow was missing!

Willow is the Siamese kitty in the picture.  You can see this photo and read about their story here.

We know Willow's mommy is furry happy to have her home again.  We are thankful too, for the workers who kept an eye out for her and are making sure she will be back with her mom soon.

Do you suppose she used up more than one of her nine lives?

Hopes you all had a great Mancat Monday!

Hi efurrybody, Sami here!

We're back...'er... really mom is back. So we can get her to tippy tap for us and come visit efurrybody.  We misses efurrybody when she goes away. :(

We has our bean brofur trained really well so we didn't miss a meal or treat while mom was away.

He doesn't let us sleep in his room tho so we hads to talk really loud to our bean sisfur to get into her room, MOL

Mom says she is going to spend her day doing housework.  We say, no way, cuz she has to help us visit efurrybody.  At least when we isn't napping!  She is going to be busy, MOL.
